an estimated bill and then we'll fact check and see. the obama administration will fact check and see and make sure that what they've estimated is the true cost. >> i just don't understand this, bob. an estimated bill based on what? something like 1/3 of the people signing up here have not really signed up because there's no payment mechanisms. we're going to have guest estimates and the government is going to give the insurance company the money and the insurance company is going to hand over the subsidies to people who didn't sign up officially. this is a little "alice in wonderland" for me. >> you know how screwed up was? well, they didn't fix the back end. it's so screwed up that the federal government, the obama administration, can't pay the insurance companies their share of the subsidy premium. people get subsidies to help buy insurance and the federal government provides those. the administration hasn't built that part of the administration yet. here we are, it's almost january 1. the back -- almost none of the back part of the system works. they still can't transfer the
of transparency issues with the obama administration with a lot of criticism on drone striking and a lot of criticism on his nsa policies as shown in the snowden scandal this last summer. you know, it is in the interest of a state to be able to protect its citizens from internal threats, and in that sense, a lot of things that president obama had to do with the nsa were justified. however, there were very, very far-reaching implications. >> actually, i agree with you on that, although it's tricky business. >> it's tricky business. >> to know where to draw the line. obama or obama care, or nsa, i'll give you options here, because you will admit the polls are plunging and sort of breath-taking to watch this happen. >> okay. i think we need to rewind a bit and just view what the youth, my generation, millenial generation, still holds true to their hearts. we still agree with president obama on the issues important to our generation. we still agree with him on issues like gay marriage. we still agree with him on issues like a woman's right to choose. and there are certain core values that i
the obama care failures and embarrassments continue to pile up, when will the administration finally admit that it's time to hit the pause problem until all the problems are fixed or maybe the pause button is not set to work until november 2014. that may be closer to truth. here former obama campaign aide, he was briefed by the obama white house on the health care and grace marie turner, she will be testifying tomorrow on obama health care. what's the thrust of your testimony going to be tomorrow? >> the president has said that oh, we don't need to worry about those 5% of americans, 15 million americans that are losing their health insurance because of individual coverage. he said 85% to 90% of the rest of americans are fine nothing changes for them. what we're talking about is how many changes there are to those in the employer market, 150 million people have coverage through the employer market. and for small businesses and big businesses many of them are going to lose coverage, see much higher premiums, higher deductible, fewer doctors in their network. there are many, many changes to c
to those cancelled plans, larry, when the administration announced the fix for the plan cancellations that many states have adopted. that means they can be back on the market for another year. that means the enrollees are not entering the obama carriesing pools and there are fears that the pool will be much less healthy than expected. the change is now for the federal government to open wider that spigot of payouts in reinsurance program that is supposed to last through 2016. >> we have known this. what's new is the switcheroo from the president. i get that. but i don't think, you know, i don't think people really knew going back that in the fine print of this bill was essentially a three-year potential rescue of the insurance companies. if they don't get enough revenues and they have too many claims. i mean, what do you expect? if you have a special spot for processing the sick and the elderly god bless them. i'm saying you should have known that this was going to come. and the polls have said the young people don't want this thing. i don't think people knew, hadley, that this was in
